It’s Taco Day! Kid’s Music Day! World Smile Day! How will you celebrate?

This is a special Friday. You can eat tacos, encourage kids to sing and play instruments and smile! 🙂

Let’s break down these special celebrations for 10/4/19.


TACO DAY! (from
Tacos are the Mexican equivalent of a sandwich. Instead of bread, a hard or soft tortilla is wrapped or folded around a spicy filling. It is not known exactly when taco day originated, but tacos themselves have been around for a long time. They were first referenced by that name at the end of the 19th century, but the conquistador Cortez mentioned a meal prepared with tortillas as far back as 1520! Those would have been the soft wheat or corn tortillas. Hard taco shells are a much more recent innovation.

The idea behind Kids Music Day, is to have a day dedicated to celebrating the importance of music education for children. Research has long shown the positive academic and social benefits kids receive by participating in music classes and related activities.

The purpose of Kids Music Day is not to create professional musicians (although that will happen for some). The true aim of Kids Music Day is to help kids have the best chance of future success in whatever career path they choose.

Today is also WORLD SMILE DAY! (from

Sometimes all it takes to make the day better is a smile, whether it’s one someone gives to you, or one you share with another. Little acts of kindness can bring a shining smile to someone who has otherwise had a terrible day, and it can change everything that follows.

Whether it’s just a simple compliment, a cheery hello, or a gift of something small to help brighten their day, World Smile Day encourages you to take action to bring a few more smiles into the world.

We celebrated World Smile Day with our Friday Favorites. Listen in as The Morning Thing Co-Hosts share a memory of when someone made them smile.
